Chevdove Posted December 8, 2022 Report Share Posted December 8, 2022 What is the United Nations Doing About HAITI? And, can anything be done to help the people, especially the children? I read that a Biden Administrator just recently resigned because he disagrees with the Biden administration's actions. Apparently, many Haitian's fled to Mexico and thereabouts after the 2010 earthquake and are now being deported back to Haiti by the Biden administration. And many of them were actually born in Mexico and have never been to Haiti, so obviously many of them being sent to Haiti are children and teen agers! Lately, I have been doing a little research about Haiti and I am honestly very surprised about what I have learned. Did anyone here know that most Haitians are from ancestors that came from Dahomey!? That sounds shocking to me, initially, but then on the other hand, it makes sense because of the extensive slave trading that went on in that region. But if this is true then, my first instincts seem to also be true in that the women warriors were actually victims and mostly enslaved themselves and became victims of the very people that forced them into this warrior women culture. I learned too, that the famous Toussaint Loverture's parents were from Allada and were enslaved by the DaHomey Slave Catchers. Also, the famous Alexander Dumas' father [or, grandfather] were captured by the Dahomey slave catchers too. DID ANYONE HERE KNOW TOO THAT AFTER THE HAITIANS REVOLTED AGAINST SLAVERY THAT MANY OF THEM IMMIGRATED TO LOUISIANA!!!??? I'm like what!? I never learned this in school!? There was NEVER a connection made about the Louisiana Purchase and the Haitian revolt!!! So then, my research revealed that the president at the time, President Andrew Jackson deliberately suppressed the Haitin victory that led to them being a free nation. American did not recognize Haiti until 1862 as being a free nation. But what surprises me is that because the Haitians fought so hard, it was them that became the DIRECT reason the French decided to sale the Lousiana country which comprised a vast area of land from Louisiana to the west and up to Canada around 1803. This kind of history is crazy fascinationg for me. But now, fast forward to now!!! After the 2010 Earthquake that hit Haiti really bad, and the Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and etc. this country has went from bad to worse. I am only beginning to research, however, I believe that this kind of information is important for African Americans to know about. Why, I wonder, is Haiti having all of this horrors? This country is in trouble. It's like worse than being clasified as 'A Third World Country' status. Here are two brief videos that I have recently watched. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
